and in the end ... not correct. :)


Comprehension my friend. I didn't predict how the Jets would do during the '09 season. I stated how they did in the '07 and '08 seasons.

The packers offered him money to retire


No. They didn't. He was already retired. They offered him money for the rights to use his image in marketing campaigns for the next ten years. His return to the league, in any uniform, rendered such a deal moot.


Thus.. The money was for him to stay retired. =)

No, it wasn't. The deal had been originally offered to him before he retired. But it makes no sense for a team to market a player who is on another roster, so naturally the offer was withdrawn when he went to the Jets.

Child please you know damn well the offer was made to keep him retired, everyone knows that. It's just like when your wife puts on something that is butt ugly and she asks how she looks and what do most men say? It looks good on you.

What part of "the offer was on the table before ever retired" do you not understand?

Your slandering of the front office doesn't make your allegations true. Everyone knew that the Duke boys had raped that girl too.

Fuck what everyone knows. The majority is usually wrong.

The offer could have been drawn up 2 years prior to his leaving the team in the first place.. The fact still remains that it required him to not return to the NFL in order for the contract to be valid.

Brett told Al Jones he didn't understand why the media is referring to the Marketing Deal as a bribe because thats not what it is.

Are you insinuating that there is a clause in this contract stipulating that he must remain retired in order to receive the money? I highly doubt that this is so. I think it's simply a practical effect of the fact that it makes no logical (or economic) sense for a team to market a player who is playing for another organization.

But I don't know the official NFL policies on this matter. I don't know if there are procedures in place to prevent an organization from having such an agreement with another team's player (somewhat analogous to the league's tampering rules). I wonder if someone like Andrew Brandt or Tom Florio could clarify this for us.

If Favre is active as a NFL player, the Packers don't need his permission to use his name.

If Favre is retired from the NFL, the Packers need his permission (aka Marketing Agreement) to profit from his name.

I think Favre should tell the Packers they can't use his name on anything, Ted Thompson wanted him gone so why should they make money off him?

edit: And just to shut up people saying they aren't check out Packer Pro shop.
